Brave Rival - Alice Armstrong BandBrave Rival's critically acclaimed debut album "Life's Machine", was released to rave reviews. Classic Rock described them as a cross between Heart and Tedeschi Trucks.
Their songs have been featured on Joe Bonamassa's Radio show where he informed listeners that they were "his favourite discovery this year". Nominated for a UK blues award in the Best Emerging Artist category and took part in the 2022 UK Blues Challenge. Played main stage Butlin's Skegness Rock and Blues Festival and have toured the UK as headline act (selling out many venues) and support for Dom Martin, Laurence Jones and Corky Laing.
An Alice Armstrong show promises a soulful, dynamic, genre-busting performance packed with world class musicianship and wry British repartee. Her personal and provocative lyrical content is served with an enigmatic physical performance reminiscent of the likes of Janis
Joplin, Tina Turner and Lizzo, leaving the awed audience laughing, crying and tapping their feet in equal measure.
“Roaring grooves and soulful arias to drive the heart wild”.
“One of the most emotional and far-ranging vocals".
